The Warren County Sheriff’s Office is warning elderly residents of a scam by someone claiming to be from the county Probate Court.
Investigators said last Friday the scammer called an elderly resident and said he was from the court and would be helping the resident with his finances.
A short time later a middle-aged, white male, with short salt and pepper hair showed up at the resident’s home. The suspect was driving a white Cadillac.
The elderly resident contacted the Warren County Sheriff about the incident.
The Sheriff’s Office said if anyone receiving calls or visits from any person identifying themselves as a representative of the Warren County Probate Court should contact their local law enforcement agency.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 513-695-1280.
